Detailed Product Description
New York/London, 1997, 1st edition. 191 pp, color photos and illustrations. As New Softcover (plastic) with paper wrappers.

One of the Trailside Guides For Outdoor Adventure (PBS Series).

Climbing has become a hot sport thanks to indoor climbing walls in big cities and small towns all across America. But conventional climbing guides have failed to keep pace with the sport's surge in popularity. Rock Climbing is designed to help beginners go beyond their first experiences at a climbing gym and gain the skills they need to get out, rope up, and climb! It explains safe climbing techniques in a logical step-by-step sequence with special emphasis on transferring techniques acquired indoors to the wider world of actual rock faces. 

Full-color sequential illustrations, stunning color photographs, and the author's field-tested teaching approach clarify all the fundamentals, including gear, knots, top roping, leading, anchors, belaying, and rappelling. Whether readers are getting started at the local gym or aspiring to head to the big mountain faces, this guide will give them a rock-solid foundation to build on. 

These guides are designed to be used on the trail. Their handy size makes them easy to take along on outdoor adventures. Each book has more than 100 color photographs and dozens of informative, full-color technical illustrations you'll refer to again and again.
